This tour was magical. Bridget, our tour guide, was a fountain of knowledge about both the little known Muyil ruins and the Mayans habitation of this area. The highlight was donning life jacket, and floating down the fresh wate canals that the Mayans created as trade routes linking them to the coast

Well, it started off badly. The office forgot about our reservation. After several phone calls to the local office someone answered the phone. They made up most lame excuses why they were not at our hotel.

Finally, about an hour and a half later, Mr. Jose Lopez showed up in a car. He apologized for the mix up even though he was clearly not to blame.

He saved the day. Mr Lopez was efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. He spent time explaining the Biosphere and it vast history and its flora and fauna. He was excellent in every way.

The trip was interesting and guides friendly. The Van driver was not very friendly and played the music too loud, even after being asked twice to turn the volume down. It would have been better if they had a greater knowledge of the Muyil Ruins.
